FOREWORD 

T^ OR more than half a century, Johns-Manville 
*• has been engaged in the manufacture and sale 
of building materials. Through the experience 
gained in these years of activity there has been 
developed a growing line of allied products, each 
of which contributes to the building of better 
and more comfortable homes. 

To many, the broadness of the J-M line is 
not fully known, although they may already be 
familiar with one or more of its varied products. 

This book, dedicated to distributors, dealers, 
contractors, and all who are interested in build- 
ing and remodeling, has been prepared to tell 
the complete story of the part which Johns- 
Manville^ products play in the construction of 
better and safer homes. 






Copyright, 1932 — Johns-Manville Corporation 




A PICTURE such as this is needed to reveal the many places in which one or more Johns- 
- Manville products can be used in the construction of better and more comfortable 
homes. . . . . The use of these materials is not limited to new construction only, for the 
profitable remodeling and reconstruction field offers a ready market for practically every one 

of them. .... These varied products are described on the following pages Each one 

identified by the Johns-Manville name— a name backed by over half a century of research 
and experience in the manufacture of quality building materials.

The problem of better building does not concern only the contractor or 
builder who selects and applies the materials used; it is of first importance 
also to the manufacturer. Although there are no more important items in 
the construction of homes than skill and good workmanship, these can 
only be used to best advantage when combined with materials of unques- 
tioned quality. Established through more than half a century of manufac- 
turing experience, Johns-Manville takes pride in its reputation as a manu- 
facturer of quality building materials. 

Johns-Manville Asbestos Shingles are the ideal roofing material. In ap- 
pearance and quality, these permanent, unburnable shingles deserve to be 
termed a luxury, but from the practical standpoint of actual cost, they are 
within the reach of practically every budget. 

Second only to J-M Asbestos Shingles are J-M Asphalt Shingles — durable, 
fire-resistant and low in cost, in an unequalled range of colors and blends. 

J-M Ready-to-lay Roofings provide, for every type of building on which 
ready roofing can be used, the utmost in protection, depending on the 
type chosen. 

In addition to shingles, roofing and other products, the Johns-Manville 
line includes a wide variety of those "accessory items,'* such as sheathing 
papers, slaters felts, plaster board, etc. f which are required in building 
construction* 

The ultimate in house insulation, J-M Rock Wool Home Insulation 
makes available to owners of both new and old homes the maximum in 
year 'round living comfort and winter fuel savings. Built or blown into the 
walls and roof spaces, J-M Home Insulation is a thick insulating material 
that is permanent, vermin-proof, rot-proof, and odorless — a material that, 
moreover, absolutely will not burn. 

In Johns-Manville Insulating Board is found a structural and insulating 
material with almost unlimited possibilities for use in constructing, insu- 
lating, decorating and remodeling all types of home. It is also available in 
special forms known as Insulating Lath, Bevel Board and PanLboard. 

J-M Asbestos Wainscoting, the new, permanent, colorful wall material, 
has all the advantages of tiled walls, but, being made in sheet form, can be 
installed by any carpenter, using ordinary tools. 

Johns-Manville Transite and Asbestos Wall Board meet all needs for 
exterior and interior work where strength, rigidity and fire-resisting quali- 
ties are essential. 

For restoring old wood, metal and composition roofs, and for the many 
miscellaneous repair jobs which involve patching, pointing up or water- 
proofing, Johns-Manville manufactures a complete line of roof coatings, 
roof and caulking putties and cements.

There is not a home, large or small, which can afford to be without the 
protection of a fireproof roof. And now that Johns-Manville Asbestos Shingles 
are available at unprecedented low prices, every home can have complete 
security from fire and weather, and, at the same time, obtain beauty which 
nevei grows old. 

No finer roof can be selected than a roof of these fireproof, weather-proof 
Johns-Manville Asbestos Shingles — recognized to be the utmost in roofing 
quality.

JOHNS-MANVILLE 

RIGID ASBESTOS 

SHINGLES 

Johns-Manville Rigid Asbestos Shingles 
combine, in one permanent material, all 
the features of the perfect roof* 

They are unaffected by the action of 
the elements. They will not rot, rust, 
warp, split or corrode. They absolutely 
will not burn, and not one has ever worn 
out— the first cost is the last cost! 

Furthermore, they are available in a 
wide range of colors, styles and prices, to 
meet every requirement of architectural 
design, personal preference or budget. 

Johns-Manville Asbestos Shingles are 
composed of asbestos fibres and Portland 
cement, moulded under hydraulic pres- 
sure into one homogeneous unit that ac- 
tually grows tougher with age. 

These permanent shingles can be ap- 
plied right over an old roof just as easily as 
on a new home. Wherever used, they 
assure the owner of a lifetime of protec- 
tion from weather and fire without fur- 
ther expense, and add materially to the 
appearance and the value of the home. 

For many years, Johns-Manville Asbes- 
tos Shingles have been regarded as a lux- 
ury — suitable for only the most expensive 
homes* Today, new designs, simplified 
application methods and lower prices of 
the shingles have brought the cost of a 
finished J-M Asbestos Shingle roof with- 
in the reach of practically every budget. 

Many an old home has received a new 
lease on life with walls of J-M Asbestos 
Shingles in addition to the J-M roof — the 
ideal way of obtaining permanent pro- 
tection and freedom from maintenance 
costs, for the whole home. 

On the following pages are shown the many 
styles of J-M Asbestos Shingle from which a 
suitable selection can easily be made.

J-M No. 55 
SALEM SHINGLES 

J-M No. 55 Salem Shingles combine all the 
characteristics of the finest roofing materials- 
random widths, harmonious colors, heavy, 
rugged butts and a beautifully textured sur- 
face — with complete protection from weather 
and fire* 

Salem Roofs, which are appropriate on 
buildings of practically any architectural 
type, at once provide a mellowness ordi- 
narily procured only by years of weathering. 
For this reason, they have been selected to 
protect certain of the nation's foremost his- 
torical shrines, a notable example being the 
Hancock-Clarke House, at Lexington, Mass. 

Whether used to roof a new home or to re- 
roof one now standing, Salem Shingles at 
once blend in complete harmony with the 
architectural scheme.

J-M No. 235 and No. 35 
AMERICAN METHOD 

In the J-M No. 235 and No. 35 American 
Method Shingles both color and texture are 
combined to make roofs of unusual beauty 
and attractiveness at low cost. These two 
styles are identical in every respect except 
size; the No. 235 being 12" wide and the No. 
35, 8J^" wide. 

Their pleasing rough texture and un- 
trimmed edges give character to the roof and 
add materially to the attractiveness of the 
home. Ordinarily these features are found in 
only the higher priced shingles, yet these 
new shingles cost no more than smooth- 
surfaced ones.

Colors 
Illustrated above are two attractive single-toned roofs in 
the No. 25 style, in COPPER and SABLE BLACK. In addition 
to these colors, this shingle is made in DUO-BLEND GRAY, 
BRETON RED and MOSS GREEN. All these colors can be 
intermingled in varying proportions to suit the individ- 
ual taste or architectural requirements. When laid in blend- 
ed colors, with staggered butts and random widths, these 
shingles provide roof effects of unusual beauty and dis- 
tinction — yet at a very low price. 

This roof of No. 25 Shingles was applied- 
right oi^er the old wood shingles. In this case 
standard width shingles were chosen and 
laid with butts aligned.

Jf-M No. 25 
AMERICAN METHOD 

The J-M No. 25 American Method Shingle 
is a smooth-surfaced shingle with the appear- 
ance of rough texture. In the 12" size, it makes 
a roof that is not only attractive, but is very 
economical to apply, because of the smaller 
number of pieces required per square. 

Its edges are purposely rough and un- 
trimmed, to add to the beauty of the finished 
roof. This shingle is also available, on order, in 
random widths of 5" and 7", at a very slight in- 
crease in cost, and can be laid with staggered 
butts when irregular roof lines are desired.

J-M No. 30 
DUTCH LAP 

The J-M No. 30 Dutch Lap Shingle main- 
tains the characteristic horizontal and ver- 
tical lines of the American Method style. Its 
application is so simple that labor costs are 
materially reduced. This, coupled with the 
low cost of the shingles, themselves, makes 
the J-M Dutch Lap Roof one of the most eco- 
nomical asbestos roofs now available. 

At the same time, their wide range of

The J-M Clincher, which replaces the old

with a smart hammer blow at any time dur-

J-JM No. 90 
DIAMOND THATCH 

The J-M No. 90 Diamond Thatch Shingle 
is a refinement of the popular hexagonal, or 
French, roof pattern. 

Each shingle has a greater coverage, mak- 
ing fewer pieces to apply per square, with 
consequent lower application cost. Added to 
this, there is a further saving in labor effected 
through its self-spacing design and the use of 
the new J-M Clincher. 

This new asbestos shingle is offered at new 
low prices which put the advantages of per- 
manent, fireproof roof protection within the 
reach of everyone.

The new, simplified method of application permits 
these self-spacing shingles to be nailed in place very 
much like asphalt shingles, after which the butt is

JUM SIDING SHINGLES 

Siding constructed of J-M Asbestos Shin- 
gles is permanent and fireproof, for these 
shingles will not rot, corrode, warp or split. 
Nor will they burn* Moreover, when used 
for re-siding work, they can easily be ap- 
plied right over the old wood siding, there- 
by saving the expense of tearing off the old 
material* 

The two special J-M Shingles described on 
this page offer a choice of color, texture, 
effect and price, in the same permanent 
materials as J-M Roofing Shingles — asbestos 
fibres and Portland cement. 

When used in combination with a roof of 
J-M Asbestos Shingles, they complete the 
protection of the home on all sides from 
fire, weather and deterioration. 



J-M Xo. 45 SIDING SHINGLE: 



In the J-M No. 45 Shingle, with its tapered butts, tex- 
tured surface and pleasing Silver Gray color, is found a 
permanent siding material that is at once easy to lay and 
unusually attractive. Its color and texture so closely simu- 
late stained wooden shingles that it has received the ap- 



proval of architects for use on the finest homes. Should a 
different color effect be desired, however, the No. 45 
Shingle can readily be painted. 

Furnished in random widths only, to further the re- 
semblance to high-quality wooden shingles.

The J-M No. 130 Siding Shingle applies the econom- 
ical Dutch Lap principle to siding use. It is fast laying and 
self-aligning, and requires no furring. Its small size does 
away with the need for anchors or fasteners, so that the 
application is quick, simple and very economical. 

Added to these features is the low cost of the shingles, 
which helps to bring the advantages of permanent, 
unburnable siding within the reach of all. 

The No. 130 Shingle is made in the same attractive 
colors as the No. 30 Dutch Lap Shingle, illustrated on 
pages 8 and 9. This range of colors gives opportunity for 
a selection of a wall finish that is harmonious as well as 
permanent, fireproof and weathertight.

J-M Asphalt Shingles, with their beauty of color and blending, are 
an asset to every home on which they are used, and a source of pride 
to the owner. Not only are they beautiful — but they are also highly 
fire-resistant and free from periodic maintenance costs. These items 
must be considered in connection with every home, whether built 
with re-sale in mind or intended for permanent residence. 



JOHNS-HANVILLE 
ASPHALT SHINGLES 

Second only to J-M Asbestos Shingles are 
J-M Asphalt Shingles. They are made on a felt 
base which is thoroughly saturated and coated 
with weather-proof asphalt, then surfaced with 
crushed slate or minerals making a roof that is 
durable, fire resistant and colorful. The unsur- 
passed range of colors and blends in which J-M 
Asphalt Shingles are obtainable makes it easy to 
select a roof to harmonize with any desired color 
scheme. 

With square-butt and hexagonal styles in a 
variety of weights and sizes, the J-M line of 
asphalt shingles meets practically every demand 
that can be put upon it for pattern and price. 

A feature of this outstanding line is the new 
J-M Thick-butt Asphalt Shingle, with an extra 
coating of both asphalt and slate on the butts. It 
sets a new standard for asphalt shingle protec- 
tion, durability and appearance. 

J-M Asphalt Shingles are also used extensively 
for re-roofing and re-siding work, and require 
no painting or periodic repairs. In addition to 
the standard styles, there is also the J-M Bric-side 
Shingle, which has the effect of real brick. 

The use of J-M Asphalt Shingles over the 
entire roof and wall area provides long years of 
protection for the whole home, plus freedom 
from upkeep costs.

THE NEW 
THICK-BUTT 

The new JVM Thick-butt Asphalt Shingle 
is the most outstanding value ever offered in 
asphalt shingles, because it has three distinc- 
tive advantages: sealed edges, more weather- 
proof material on the exposed tabs, and 
heavier butts. It provides service and dura- 
bility far beyond the life of the ordinary as- 
phalt shingles, yet it costs but little more. 

Sealed edges. The sealed edges mean much 
longer life, for a second coating of asphalt and 
slate completely envelops each tab, sealing 
in the life-giving asphalt saturant. 

Greater thickness. Scientifically designed, 
with greater thickness on the exposed tab, 
this shingle gives much greater protection, 
yet weighs no more than ordinary asphalt 
shingles. 

Heavier butts. The extra-thick butts throw 
heavy shadow lines, which emphasize the 
roof pattern and impart a rugged character 
under all conditions — an advantage not 
found in other types of asphalt shingle.

Whether used in solid colors or in one of the blends,

BRIC-SIDE 

J-M Bric-side Asphalt Shingles, applied as 
siding on new homes or over old walls, do 
away with upkeep expense for many years. 
They require no painting and soon pay for 
themselves through the saving in mainten- 
ance. 

These durable, fire-resistant shingles have 
an extra coating of slate on the tabs, which 
not only adds to their protective value, but 
also gives the effect of brick protruding be- 
yond the mortar. 

Bric-side Shingles are the only type of as- 
phalt shingles which closely simulate struc- 
tural siding material. 



Bric-side— She, 30" x 6". 
2jHj" exposure. 1" head-

dle, 3 bundles, 192 strips 
per square. Weight, ap-

J-M Bric-side Shingles are made in RED, 
BRIGHT RED and BUFF, all with black 
"mortar," and in BRIGHT RED with white 
"mortar." The photograph above shows the 
remarkable resemblance which these shin- 
gles bear to real brickwork. Many an old 
frame house has quickly and economically 
been transformed into a substantial "brick" 
residence with these attractive shingles.

J-M READY-TO-LAY ROOFINGS 



For every roof or service condition, where 
ready-to-lay roofings can be used, Johns-Manville 
manufactures a suitable, high-quality material at 
a reasonable price. 

These products are a result of the experience 
we have gained through nearly a half-century of 
roofing manufacture. They range from materials 
designed to protect temporary buildings, up to 
weather-proof, highly fire-resisting asbestos roof- 
ings for use on permanent structures of all types. 

Asbestos Roofings 

J-M Asbestos Roofings are all made on a base 
of imperishable asbestos felts, impregnated with 
high-grade asphalt. They come in a variety of 
styles and in various thicknesses or plies: slate 
surfaced, where color is desired; White Top for 
light reflection or outstanding appearance; plain 
black for utility; some in rolls, others in sheets — 
but all built on a base of J-M Asbestos Felt* 



The fire-resisting qualities and unusually long 
life of the Asbestos Roofings have made them par- 
ticularly acceptable for use on farm and industrial 
buildings, and in all other places where depend- 
able protection from the weather and roof-com- 
municated fires is essential. 

Asphalt Roofings 

In addition, Johns-Manville also manufactures 
durable Asphalt Roofings, which are made on a 
base of asphalt-impregnated rag felt. This line 
includes mineral surfaced roofing in a variety of 
weights and styles, three grades of smooth-surfaced 
roofing, starting strips, etc. — all meeting the high 
standards of J-M quality. 

Whatever the selection may be, the user is as- 
sured of a product made to the same high stand- 
ards as all the other well-known Johns-Manville 
building materials.

Whether used with the smooth or the 
slate surface or with the white top ply, they 
give the fullest measure of protection, be- 
cause each style is built on a base of per- 
manent, fire-resisting asbestos felt. 

A variety of weights and colors makes it 
possible to select a suitable roof for every 
type of service.

HOME 
INSULATION 

HOME INSULATION 

the ultimate in house insulation 

J*M Home Insulation is, first of all, a 
thick insulation — three to four inches of 
rock wool, a permanent, vermin-proof, 
rot-proof, odorless material that abso- 
lutely will not burn* Used in old or new 
homes, it not only provides the maxi- 
mum in year 'round living comfort and 
winter fuel savings, but also brings added 
protection from fire. 

Type B 

J-M Type B Home Insulation is felted rock wool, 
wrapped on chipboard centers, into "bats," 15" wide 
x 18" long x 3" thick, which are resilient and easy to 
handle. These bats can readily be pressed between 
studs or floor beams and can easily be sawed, cut or 
even torn with the hands to fit around windows, 
doorways, pipes, etc. 

The convenient size of the bats enables the workman 
to cover large areas more quickly and economically 
than if loose material were used. Furthermore, when 
installed during construction, Type B Home Insula- 
tion at once removes any insulation problem with 
respect to heating or summer comfort which other- 
wise would confront the owner later on. It also gives 
added security from fire, 

J-M Type B Home Insulation can likewise be ap- 
plied in open attics and other accessible places in old 
homes, thereby making the homes much more com- 
fortable all year 'round and much easier to heat in 
cold weather. 



Type A 

For insulating the walls 
and finished attics of exist- 
ing homes, J-M Type A 
Home Insulation is recom- 
mended. Type A Insula- 
tion is loose, nodulated 
rock wool, which is 
"blown" into the wall and 
attic spaces under pneu- 
matic pressure, by Ap- 
proved Home Insulation 
Contractors who have the 
necessary equipment. We 
shall be glad to give you 
the name of the Approved 
Contractor in your neigh- 
borhood. 




"Blowing" Type A Insulation. 




A package of Type B "bats," slip-sheeted for easy handling. 



The "bats" need only 
a slight bit of pressing 
to fill out the entire 
space between the 
studs or floor beams. 
Being compact, they 
leave no voids. 



Type B Home Insulation — Shipped 6 bats per package, slip- 
sheeted for ease in handling. One bat covers approximately 2 
square feet. Approximate weights: per bat, 5 J 2 lbs.; per package, 
33 lbs., net; shipping weight, 35 to 38 lbs. per package. 




The "bats" can easily be 
sawed, cut ivith a butcher 
knife, or torn with the handsj 
to fit odd-shaped spaces. 



Just a rough cut and 
a little pressing and 
the space is filled ivith 
three inches of insu- 
lating material.

The unique construction of this building, with both flat and curved 
exterior walls, shows how J-M Insulating Board meets all the re- 
quirements of a satisfactory sheathing material. Although it is rigid, 
it can be made to conform to surfaces having a considerable curve. 

J-M Insulating Board need not be covered with building paper. 
Its unbroken surface, with joints centered on studs and joists, 
provides a solid barrier against the passage of heat and cold. 



J-M 
INSULATING BOARD 



the 2 -in -4 structural and 
insulating material 



J-M Insulating Board is a homogeneous, all- 
wood fibre board, combining structural strength 
and rigidity with high insulating value. It can 
be used as sheathing, roof insulation, attic lining, 
plaster base, interior finish, and as partitions, or 
wall treatment throughout the building. Its large- 
sized rigid sheets and easy workability materially 
reduce application costs. 

When used as sheathing, it provides a "built-in" 
insulation that makes the house more saleable, 
becauseof theyear-'round comfort and fuel saving 
it will bring to the owner. 

It is also an ideal material for converting un- 
used space into finished attics, play rooms, spare 
rooms, storage closets, etc. 

On the following pages are shoxvn some of the many 
other uses of this modern structural, insulating material.

J-M 

INSULATING LATH 

— the ideal plaster base 

J-M Insulating Lath is Insulating Board in 
18" x 48" size, with long edges shiplapped, 
and is also available with all edges beveled. 
It is applied with the "gridded" surface ex- 
posed. Plaster bonds to it with a strength far 
greater than the key of plaster on wood lath. 
J-M Insulating Lath makes a solid, unbroken 
surface which prevents unsightly lath marks 
and also results in a saving in plaster and 
labor. 

THE DECORATIVE USE OF 
J-M INSULATING BOARD 

With its attractive buff color and its pleasing sur- 
face, J-M Insulating Board is a decorative material 
in its own right. It can also be stained or painted to 
carry out any selected color scheme. 

It can easily be sawed into practically any pattern, 
and is therefore adaptable to a variety of decorative 
effects. The illustrations show its wide range of use 
as a stained wall finish, as a base for paint and 
plastic paint and as a decorative border. Where tile 
or ashlar effects are desired, use J-M Bevel Board. 

J-M Insulating Board also has the advantage of 
deadening sound between rooms. 

Being suitable for sheathing, insulating and deco- 
rative uses, J-M Insulating Board enables the user to 
supply all his needs for materials of these types with 
a single product combining structural strength and 
insulating value with attractive appearance. 

J-M PanLboard 

For those who desire a hard-finished surface, J-M 
provides PanLboard, which is Insulating Board com- 
pressed to half its usual thickness. It is especially recom- 
mended for interior use in lining walls, closets, ceilings, 
attic rooms, etc., and as a base under linoleum. 

Insulating Board— Size, 48" wide x 6' to 12' long. Either Y 2 " or 1" 
thick. Approximate weight, % lb. per square foot, per J^" thickness. 

Insulating Lath— Size, 18" x 48". Either Y 2 " or 1" thick. Long 
edges shiplapped. All edges beveled on special order. Packed in 
bundles containing fifteen ]/ 2 " sheets or eight 1" sheets. Weight, 
approximately 65 lbs. per bundle. 

Bevel Board— Size, 18" x 32" and 24" x 32" x V 2 " thick. Weight 
approximately % lbs. per square foot. 

PanLboard— Size, 48" wide x 6' to 12' long. %" thick. Weight, 
approximately % lbs. per square foot. 




J-M Insulating Lath, 
with its "gridded" sur- 
face, is an ideal plaster 
base, requiring a mini- 
mum of plaster and la' 
bor. Plaster cannot fall 
off, nor can unsightly 
lath marks develop. 




The walls and ceiling of this attractive living room were 
constructed entirely of J-M Insulatiitg Board. 




In the dining room, 
abova J-M Insulating 
Board has been used for 
the walls, ceiling and the 
border; while at the right 
it is shown, stained, in a 
paneled effect. The only 
wood is the small mould' 
ing around the panels. 



{26} 




With J-M Insulating Board, unused space within the home can 
often be reclaimed so as to increase the livable space as much as 20%. 



OIV THE FARM 

On the farm, with its many types of building, there are 
almost unlimited opportunities for improvements and 
economies through the use of J-M Insulating Board. 

Its value, both as an insulator and a tight sheathing, 
makes it particularly adaptable for use in brooder houses, 
laying houses, dairy barns, stables, etc. More and more, 
the control of temperature and humidity in these build- 
ings is receiving the attention of the farmer; and J-M 
Insulating Board, which can be nailed on right over the 
interior walls, provides a satisfactory, economical method 
of correcting undesirable conditions. 

With J-M Insulating Board as a lining, animal heat is 
conserved, and less fuel is required when the buildings 
are heated. A lining of Insulating Board is likewise 
especially useful as an insulator in ice houses, milk 
houses, etc., and will help to keep any building cooler in 
summer. 

Where equipment must be protected from dampness 
and weather, a lining of J-M Insulating Board will aid in 
keeping the interior of the building dry. 

If used as an outside finish, however, J-M Insulating 
Board must be painted, like wood. 



INSULATING BOARD 
PRODUCTS 



FOR REMODELING 

J-M Insulating Board, with its structural 
strength, rigidity, and pleasing natural finish, 
lends itself particularly to remodeling and re- 
construction work, for it provides, in a single 
material, all the advantages which formerly 
could be obtained only by the use of several. 
At the same time, its large size and ease of 
handling substantially reduce the cost of 
application. 

With this versatile material, any desired 
improvement, from a storage closet to a sun 
porch, can be obtained quickly and econom- 
ically. Unused space in existing homes can 
readily be reclaimed through the construc- 
tion of play rooms and storage closets in the 
cellar, extra closets in the living quarters, and 
finished rooms in the attic. An attic lining of 
this material will help to keep the home 
more comfortable, winter and summer, and, 
in addition will considerably reduce fuel bills. 




J-M Insulating Board can be used to improve the conditions in 
practically every type of farm building. Its high insulating value con- 
serves animal heat and cuts doivn the amount of fuel necessary to 
heat the buildings, and, xvhere loiv temperatures are required, it re- 
tards the inward passage of heat.

WALL BOARD 

There are two types of asbestos sheet or 
board material in the Johns-Manville line. 
They cover all the needs for both exterior 
and interior work, where strength, rigidity 
and fire protection are essential. 

Both J-M Transite and J-M Asbestos Wall 
Board are made of asbestos fibres and Port- 
land cement, and formed under great pres- 
sure into sheets of a convenient size for 
handling and installing. 

Transite 

Transite is generally recognized as the outstand- 
ing fire— and—corrosion-resisting building sheet on 
the market today. It is an unlaminated sheet of 
great strength and rigidity, and has a pleasing light 
gray color. 

It can be readily drilled, punched or sawed. It 
does not become warped, distorted or weakened 
in service, and it offers high resistance to acid

Wall Board as a fire*resisting material. Its color and finish ulso 
recommend it for interior use as a decorative material. 




This cottage, with its Transite exterior, is not only pleasing in appear* 
ance and immune to the effects of the weather, but also cannot catch fire. 

fumes and severe weather conditions. Paint is not required 
as a preservative, but can be applied if other than the nat- 
ural color is desired. 

Transite is often used to give the effect of stucco in. half- 
timber construction. It is an ideal material for the construc- 
tion of bungalows and summer cottages, particularly in 
heavily wooded sections subject to forest fires. It is also fur- 
nished cemented to both sides of Insulating Board, combin- 
ing fire protection and insulating value. In this form it is 
known as Transite-Encased Insulating Board. 

Asbestos Wall Board 

J-M Asbestos Wall Board is a laminated sheet, buff" in 
color, and second only to Transite in strength and dura- 
bility. It is essentially a material for inside use, where its 
strength, durability, fire-resisting qualities and low cost 
make an ideal combination. 

Although J-M Asbestos Wall Board may be painted, its 
pleasing color and permanent finish adapt it for use as in- 
terior walls, ceilings, window casings, partitions, cabinets, 
baseboards and other trim; while its ability to withstand 
fire makes it particularly suitable for use at any place where 
fire hazards exist — fire stop partitions, garage linings, fur- 
nace rooms, storage rooms, etc. 

J-M Asbestos Wall Board can be sawed, drilled with 
twist drills, punched, and fastened with nails or screws.
